Hide your experience from judging eyes.
VALORANT is a game of numbers – win/loss ratios, games played, headshot percentages, you name it; Rio Games probably has all those recorded for you since you started playing their ultra-popular tactical shooter.
One stat that shows how much experience you have or the number of matches you’ve played since you started is your account level, and there are several reasons you’d want to hide this stat in-game.
If you’re wondering how to hide your VALORANT level in-game, don’t worry, the process is simple and can be done in less than a few minutes. We’ll guide you through every step in this guide.
Why Hide Your VALORANT account level?
Regardless of how you like to be seen in-game, other players will probably take your VALORANT level and use it to get a general idea about how you will play in-game. Your account level won’t be a big deal in higher ranks since ranks arguably speak louder than your VALORANT level. In the lower ranks, however, having a high-level account might be against you to draw insult at your expense, especially if you lost against players with much lower account levels than you.
Suppose you do not mind players taking your level and using it to rub your loss in your face, then good for you. However, other players probably won’t take these types of losses like a champ the way you do and would like to take in-game credentials off their player cards.
Another reason you should hide your VALORANT level is to avoid smurf accusations. While smurfing isn’t a punishable offense in VALORANT (yet), players will probably report you for cheating when you ace every other round in a Bronze-ranked game.
